This 12 piece burr puzzle requires 12 moves to remove the first piece from the assembled shape and has a unique solution. Although it has only 4 possible assemblies, because of its unusual and staggered assembled shape, it is tough to find out which piece goes where. Disassembling the puzzle is not so difficult but reassembling the puzzle is challenging.
There were several candidates of the combination of the pieces for the puzzle that had a level 12 solution. Juno carefully modified the shape of some pieces and chose the puzzle to have all different pieces. He also made an effort to make the puzzle have lesser internal void to have a stable assembled shape because the pieces of the puzzle don’t interlock much on the assembled shape compared to his other 12 piece burr puzzles.
Two kinds of very distinguished timber, Bubinga and Burmese Teak, are used for the puzzle. The grain and the texture of the puzzle is gorgeous, and the puzzle will stand out on the collector’s shelf.
The puzzle is sold assembled. The solution to this puzzle will be supplied upon request by Burr Tools file format.
